Public health agency would receive $16M for capital projects under Rauner budget
Just over two-tenths of a percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Department of Public Health projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes about $16 million for the department.
All the funding for the projects comes from the Build Illinois Bond Fund.
The Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability analysis lists Gov. Bruce Rauner's funding priorities and analyzes how it would affect the state's long-term debt. Rauner included $7.8 billion for capital projects for 23 agencies.
